Attending conferences is not the problem of poor economies but it is the problem of poor community of teachers in every country. There are already a number of scholarships who only avail the rich and those who have extraordinary intelligence. Down trodden people cannot meet with colleagues living in the other countries. IATEFL is a charity it cannot meet the financial problems of the poor teachers all over the world who wants to attend the conferences. The matter should be forwarded to the policy makers. Governments and local organizations should be responsible for the teacher s conferences which they work for. Local BCs and TAs should play its role to facilitate the teachers. Home Office also needs to review its policy to enable the poor teachers to attend the conferences. Officers increments should be attached with how many people of his or her organization are involved in international and global activities so that harmony and global friendship and brotherhood can be flourished. Local departments should be responsible to give the guarantee to the immigration authorities to leave the country where the conference is and that guarantee should be considered reliable by the immigration authorities. Face to face meetings between different nations are very important in this age of hate and antagonism. Immigration authorities should not stop the speakers for participating the conferences and that is not compatible to Convention Rights. Every department in every country should keep some portion of budget to send their employees at global conferences to create brotherhood and friendship with other races. Global policy maker should give attention to this matter and try to make national governments bound to cut this budget from other expenses. The expression of poor communities is very important to solve global issues but it is not possible without having changes in global policies. Currently governments have no examples of brotherhood and peace. How can people follow the ways of peace and friendship.
